Also, T6 was the best druid tier ever. That's why everyone has it.
Tier 7 says different.
Pfft, everyone knows T7 is a lying !@#$%. I wouldn't believe a word it says.
Before I begin my question I just have to say this is the best Boomkin Guide imaginable. Every time someone asks me for help I always refer to this thread. 2 Thumbs up!
Anyway, my question is regarding the T13 4pc. I've been accustomed to saving starsurge procs for an eclipse if it's getting close especially if I'm going toward Lunar and I'm above 50. At any point should I use starsurge when going toward Lunar/Solar eclipses while still neutral? Also, when it's not a proc but a cast, should I still only stick to starfire when going toward Solar or should I throw in a starsurge assuming it's available to cast and I'm still a ways from entering Solar eclipse?
For your rotation questions, as far as starting at full neutral goes, the general advice in the rotation section holds true for T12 and T13:
Single Target Opener
When starting at FULL neutral (arrows on eclipse bar point both ways)
To go to solar eclipse
IS -> MF -> starfire til eclipse -> wrath -> starsurge
To go to lunar eclipse
IS -> MF -> wrath x2 -> starsurge -> wrath til eclipse
The caveat I'd add to that is that if you're going toward solar first and you're able to pre-cast for that fight, you can start off with a SS for a bit of "free" damage.
For when to use SS otherwise, for any setup except for 4pcT12, you always use it on CD every time it's up, whether it's a cast or a proc. The exception is something you kind of mentioned, which is if you're really close to lunar eclipse you might want to hold on to it. Where "really close" ends up being is a bit of a grey area. If you're 1 cast away from lunar, definitely hold it. If you *just* exited solar, definitely use it. The closer you get to lunar, the more likely you're going to want to be to hold it, but at that point it becomes playing the odds. A good rule of thumb is probably 2-3 casts away, depending on your haste.
